    Pros

    My manager and (most of my) colleagues were professionals, and it was a pleasure to work with them.
    Great benefits.
    Good work life balance. My manager was fine with me working from 6-8 at home, and then from 9-4 at the office.

    Cons

    Physical environment was awful for software development.

    Salary was not competitive, even when compared to those performing similar work in the company.

    I got decent performance bonuses, however I object to distribution "on a curve", where managers essentially have to duke it out so their reports can get decent bonuses. This ingrains a belief that you can't have a team where multiple people are performing at "exceeds expectations"-- which isn't true.

    Advice to Management

    The millions of dollars that were spent constructing the new Draper facility will be dwarfed by the millions of dollars in lost productivity over the life of the building. You really should have built in some quiet areas (offices) where people doing thought-work could concentrate.

    I left for a 50% salary increase; I didn't feel I could accept eBay's offers to match it because I didn't feel I would be able to deliver 50% more in the environment I was asked to work.
